2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
When I travelled in Ecuador, it is the beer that you find everywhere. It is sadly the same story that you find in South America and others countries: globalisation. This beer was bought by a big group and they spend millions of dolars in advertising with stupid women or pastic girls to sell finally a bad product. The people there like in Peru have weak salaries and they prefer to drink these kind of standard and tricatel euro lagers. In the 99% of the places you just find these macrobreweries and you don’t have the choice. This one is typical, boring and one standard lager, some malt, watery, few hop, metalic, yellow and gold color, thin and white foam, ok with a ceviche con aji.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared at the Chris & Ruth pre GBBF shindig tasting 2016 - London. Cheers! Pours clear yellow with a white cream heading. The noseh olds paper and dry, crispy cereal. Light to medium sweet flavour with some white bread, simple white sugar, cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more sugary white bread, minimal bitterness. So so, even by cheap pale lager standards.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
August 2016 - Bottle share at Chriso’s Sunday Shindig. Thanks! Simply called ’Pilsener’, brewed at CNE, Ecuador. Pale yellow, clear, lightly sparkling, foamy off-white head. Aroma is corny, buttery. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is thin malt, buttered corn, watery, touch of mint. Pretty much the same basic pale lager you can find in any country in the world. Drinkable enough.

Gibt es an jeder Ecke in Ecuador. Aus der Flasche. Gold-gelbe Farbe. Malzsüsses Aroma, wenig Geschmack, etwas herber und süßlicher als das zweite ecuadorianische Hauptbier Club. Sprudig, besser kühl trinken!
